Healthcare is a right, not a privilege
The BHS Charitable Hospital is a lifeline of affordable treatment in the Punjab
The Bhagat Hari Singh Charitable Hospital provides healthcare to a large rural community in Punjab, India.
Over 70% of India's population live in rural areas with limited to no access to hospitals or clinics. We ensure anyone in need, particularly those who are vulnerable and unable to afford basic medical care, can access the treatment in a safe and clean hospital.
The BHS Charitable Hospital treats over 25,000 patients a year
Help provide life-saving treatment for someone today
Over a Quarter of a Million people have been helped since opening in 2006
“During my pregnancy I contracted Chikungunya, a mosquito borne disease.
The BHS Charitable Hospital cared for me throughout and the treatment was outstanding”

In India, patients have to pay upfront to receive any kind of medical treatment. Without private insurance, many people do not seek medical help as they cannot afford it.
